Brad Furman, Darren Aronofsky Get “Intricate”

Filmmakers Brad Furman (“The Lincoln Lawyer”) and Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”) are set to team for “Intricate” reports The Los Angeles Times.

Set in 1990’s New York City, the film is the true story of a highly touted college basketball recruit whose involvement in drug dealing leads him on a downwards spiral after his sporting career doesn’t pan out.

At the time, the New York narcotics trade is rife with violence and connections to the burgeoning rap industry. Furman will direct while Aronofsky will produce through his Protozoa Pictures.
